Vapour Organic Beauty - so light you will swear you aren't wearing makeup!

It used to be that when I heard people talking about cosmetics that feel lighter than air, like there isn't even anything on your face - I was always skeptical, like when I heard people talking about unicorns and fairies, nice stories but everyone knows they aren't real.  Vapour Organic Beauty has me changing my tune, not about the unicorns so much but I have finally tried for myself a makeup line that truly is like wearing nothing at all on your face!

Formulated in New Mexico, their artisanal cosmetics lab is one of the pioneers of healthy non-toxic cosmetics.  After years of developing and manufacturing products for other brands, they knew the time was right to lunch their own brand.  They teamed up with Eric Sakas who spent years developing cosmetics alongside legendary makeup artist Kevyn Aucoin as well as working for many major beauty brands and Vapour Organic Beauty was born.

This makeup line is especially great for people that don't have the time or patience to mess around with their makeup.  It all comes in a stick form, requires no brushes or applicators other then your fingers - just swipe, rub with your fingers and go!  I have now tried several of their products and these were my faves:

Atmosphere Luminous Foundation - 110 light (comes in 5 colours) - $41 - this is meant to be a buildable light to medium coverage.  I like a light coverage so this was perfect for me.  Be prepared, it really does have a luminous quality to it so if you have oily skin you might not like the finished look as it does look somewhat glowy.  I tried using a loose powder on top and that knocked out the glow so you can certainly wear this foundation luminous or matte.  I don't think I can rave enough about how little this felt like foundation.  It was literally like having nothing on my face!

Aura Multi Use Blush - 202 spark (comes in 3 colours) - $32.50 - I am a fan of cream blushes and this one was no exception.  Again the colour was buildable, had the same light texture and blended really easily.  You can also use this as a lip and eye colour if you like a natural easy look.

Siren Lipstick - 402 hint (comes in 5 colours) - very creamy with just a hint of shine.  It had good lasting power, I didn't have to reapply until after lunch.

Elixir Lip Gloss - 303 twinkle (comes in 5 colours) - lots of shine and the colour was perfect.  Looked nice on it's own but really beautiful over a lipstick!

Also available in the Vapour line is a concealer, trick stick, primer, eye colour stick and lip conditioner.  New products coming up are a bronzer, body spotlighter and a gloss.  I'll keep you updated on those.

Vapour Organic Beauty can be purchased online here.  Canadians should check it out here on The Shopping Channel website which is an even better deal for us as they have lots of sets available.  My husband was horrified to discover that The Shopping Channel has a website that sells beauty products - he doesn't feel my habit requires another supplier.  Check it out here, they have lots of brands that I only thought were available at Sephora and some that I didn't think we could get here at all.  Stay tuned for more of my Shopping Channel finds and definitely check out Vapour!
